AMANDA HIGGINS

Ibiza was like the portal that opened up everything in my life for me. I always dreamed of visiting the island from a young age. From the moment you step onto the island you can literally feel the energy hit you as soon as I touched ground I fell in love.

You would expect to find nothing more than music, drugs, wild parties and sex which it is indeed notorious for but people don’t realize that the minute they step off that plane they are stepping onto one of the most spiritual places in the world where everyone lives and let lives. Of course you will find a small community of ket heads and techno heads but aside from the madness there is a hidden heartbeat. The island is full of some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, small coves, cliffs and everything in between to explore. The beautiful and majestic island of Es Vedra is one of my favorite spots. It is said to be the 3rd most magnetic spot in the world and when you sit in its presence and look in awe you can feel all your worries melt away, this is what gives the island its magnetism and I believe when they say something always draws you back that it is because of this magnetism. It is as if the island is conscious it knows what it is doing with you a lot of people say it can drive you crazy but in my experience it has chewed me up and spat me out to make me realize and learn so much about myself. Not only that but you meet people from all walks of life who you learn from and everyone has a story to tell it’s like a proper little community of hippies everyone is just free in the way they live. I miss walking about just seeing all the same familiar faces, sleeping my hangovers away on the beach, not knowing what day of the week it was because everyday is the weekend.

As for the club life if you have heard of Ibiza then you will know that it is the best place to visit for that, you can see all your favorite djs play at your doorstep even watch as the sunsets at mambo before the night erupts in chaos.

To sum it up Ibiza is.... whatever you want it to be but to me is nothing short of magical and paradise. And I guarantee you that once you step back on that plane you won’t be the same person you were when you were when you arrived. Everyone needs a little Ibiza in their life
